Created in 2009, The Broader Representation Advocacy Team (BRAT-PAC) is a non-profit political organization and is not connected with any candidate, party, or other entity. We are dedicated to recruiting, training, and providing financial support to African American candidates for public office at the local, state, and national levels while working with partner organizations to identify, educate, and mobilize African American voters across the country in elections where African American voters can make a difference.
After working within communities around the country for many years on issues and political campaigns educating and mobilizing primarily African American voters, the BRAT-PAC team came to the conclusion that we can no longer wait on campaigns or political parties to come into our communities to elect candidates that will bring fresh thinking, ideas and solutions to problems that continue to limit the potential in African American communities. We will seek to accomplish this by working in coalition across communities through our established working relationships with local, state and national community organizations and leaders, elected officials, as well as corporations and trade associations to motivate African-American people to remain actively engaged in the political process.
